Calendula Wildflower Seed

Calendula (Calendula Officinalis Mix) - This wildflower seed produces an annual or short-lived herbaceous perennial that grows from 16 - 24 inches tall. The flowers are daisy-like and come in colors of orange or yellow with single or double rows of petals. Calendula seeds grow easily and the flowers make a great addition to any garden, offering both flowers and foliage that are edible. The plant has terrific pest-fighting abilities as well. Its flowers attract good bugs into the garden and help repel the less desirous bugs. Also called Pot Marigold, Calendula grows quickly from wild flower seed, blooms heavily, and then dies with the first heavy frost. It will grow in all regions of North America.

Sow Pot Marigold seeds in cell packs, press into soil and lightly cover. Kept at 70F, germination averages 7 - 14 days. Or direct sow seeds into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost has passed in the spring. Lightly cover the flower seeds with peat moss, and sow 6 seeds per foot. Thin to 8 - 12 inches apart. These plants prefer full sun, moderate water, and almost any soil with good drainage will work. Calendula flowers are long-lasting cut, and they attract bees and butterflies. Pot Marigolds perform the best in cool weather, and they can grow fall-spring in mild winter areas.
